Biden, who has long dogged accusations of being heavily compromised by Beijing due to his son’s ongoing business interests in the nation, has set the rumor mill in overdrive after an announcement from the U.S. Commerce Secretary over the weekend.
Gina Raimondo, who serves as Biden’s U.S. Commerce Secretary, remarked that Biden has requested for varied members of his cadre to examine the possibility of lifting sanctions from China, specifically the sanctions set during the Trump administration. Former President Trump is well known for warning the world about China’s imminent economic and political plans, and he sanctioned them accordingly.
Unfortunately, the ailing presidency of President Biden, which has witnessed gasoline soaring to well over $8 per gallon in some parts of the nation, has resulted in the White House’s remarkably short-term interests with regards to serious national security concerns.
Per the alleged wisdom of the White House, the sanctions on China may help alleviate some inflationary pressures Americans are experiencing. Recently, polls indicate that 80 percent of voters are primarily concerned with the economy, headed into midterm elections.
However, rather than re-engage efforts with American energy independence, Biden has opted to throw a major lifeline to China instead.
“We are looking at [lifting Chinese sanctions],” Raimondo boomed on CNN.
“In fact, the president has asked us on his team to analyze that,” Raimondo continued, leaving no doubt as to who the architect of bolstering Chinese wealth is.
“So we are in the process of doing that for him, and he will have to make that decision,” Raimondo continued, emphasizing the extent to which Biden is personally gunning for bolstering Chinese wealth, and, by default, Russia’s ongoing onslaught on Ukraine.,
Despite the White House’s insistence on being on Ukraine’s side, China is well known for refusing to implement sanctions on Russia; on the contrary, China has indirectly assisted Russia throughout the conflict. For instance, following the suspension of Visa and Mastercard services in Russia, China’s UnionPay sauntered in.
By lifting Chinese sanctions, the White House will further bolster Chinese wealth, thereby setting the stage for further enhancing Russia’s geopolitical position.
